This is something that tends to get over looked, or the needed attention it deserves. Reliable backups… The worse time to find out it’s not working, is when you need it.
Our typical solution includes a remote backup, but also uses a local storage drive for faster restoration. Basically, if it’s not an emergency… Why be restricted by bandwidth to do a restore. A user interfaces allows you to see the status and history of your jobs. Backups can be scheduled hourly, daily weekly monthly and can be retained for as long you want.
Now backups tend to be out of sight, out of mind… only after time, it stopped because of an error. Well, we monitor the backups to ensure success.
Now of course, there’s always draw backs… The big one is the amount of data you need to place in storage. This directly effects the cost. Also, this is an onsite service… We only service our local area, unless arrangements are made.
